Delicate Spring Flowers - Painted Poppies

   I'm combing 2 challenges again today.  The Spring is in the Air theme at the Paper Players was perfect to use with the soft colors at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

  I haven't inked up Painted Poppies in forever and it has the cutest little grouping of delicate tiny flowers that I though would work wonderfully for these 2 challenges.

  I used a piece of Hand-Penned DSP for the background and now looking at the package this color is actually Daffodil Delight not So Saffron like the challenge calls for!!  I totally thought it was So Saffron the whole time.  Maybe it's faded enough to fit??  Well I used it in good faith nonetheless!  

  The flowers are stamped in Mint Macaron and then colored in with Blends in So Saffron (I promise!) and Fresh Freesia.  I trimmed the edge into a scallop with the Penned Flowers dies.

  The sentiment from Flowering Tulips is stamped in Mint Macaron and cut with the Tasteful Labels die.  I added a second shape from the Tasteful Labels dies to give the sentiment a bit more weight and popped it up on dimensionals.  A few pearls and Fresh Freesia open weave ribbon finish off the details.

  Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
